even think of going there. I won’t tell you how peaceful it is, or that you catch a lot of fish, even when you don’t know how to fish, Or that Kristen and Josh are the nicest people in the world, Or that it’s a quiet get away… a place to read and paint. And that the people who go there are so nice, too, and helped me learn to clean fish in the fish house…or that Josh showed me how to drive a boat. Because if I tell you this, you might come, too. So if you do, just keep it our little secret, OK? It’s awesome. Sharon (Saint Paul, Minnesota)
I have been to just about every corner of Minnesota, and this camp is my favorite place of them all! I am a frequent visitor (having been going here for, oh…8 or 9 years) and the lake is always quiet and inviting, not to mention right outside the cabin windows! We spend most of our time fishing, bird watching, canoeing, swimming and relaxing on the water. The cabins are always clean and well kept, and the staff is always smiling and helpful. My husband and I can’t wait to be back!
